Bridging The Gap

Bhavya, an active volunteer at the Bridging the Gap program, tells us what the program aspires to do. Bridging the Gap is a three month course with an impressive and ambitious objective that has had a deep impact on several children. On the 3rd of December, children from several schools gathered together for the community event during which there was joyous dancing, a parade, many interactive games and goodies like popcorn and cotton candy. Beneath all the celebration, there were many obstacles that stood in the way of triumph, and Bhavya reveals what they were and how they successfully overcame them. She also talks about the change the movement has sparked and how it has empowered children to freely discuss topics that were considered a taboo earlier.

Laney's Friends

Laney's Friends is a touching children's story written by Noel Parent. The protagonist of the story is a compassionate little girl called Laney who possess the ability to talk to animals. She and her best friend, a kitten by the name of Marle come across a rabbit in need of immediate help. Their kindness and gentle character compels them to help the rabbit. However, they feel as though the danger has not passed as yet, and Laney and her friends set out on an adventure to find out what is wrong and fix it. Throughout their journey, they come across animals that are tired, scared, trapped or hurt and they do their best to help them. With each animal they save, their group becomes bigger and more motivated to find the reason for all the horrible happenings in the world. Eventually, they come across a source that is able to answer their questions, and gives them a powerful and thought provoking message that gives Lanie hope and a solution. While this heart touching story reveals where we have gone wrong, it also exposes the light at the end of the tunnel and our role as the future generation.

The Skate Park

The Skate Park, is a youth hub, a forest island, and a safe environment to bring families, friends and children together.

Have you heard what is happening at the new Skate Park in Dehashakti?
First of all let me give you directions on how to get there:
If you are driving from the Youth Center towards Fertile, pass Minati and a few hundred meters on your right you will see the Dehashakti sign. Enter and take the very first sharp right. You will be in a skate park in the middle of the forest.

I spoke to Edgar, one of the founders of the Skate Park, and he described a bit of the history and the movement behind it.
Let's give kudos to the Auroville youth that managed to procure funding to initiate this park; transport the metal ramp originally in Aurovelo to the Skate Park to centralize the activities and improve the layout , so now they have two ramps in the court. With surplus money they even added a staircase to the ramp and built a tree house.
Another cool aspect of this project is that the Skate Park is part of a plan of conservation of the green corridor, which includes the wild life in the area and the forest. The green corridor links to the city center by cycle and foot paths.
The Skate Park as it is now functions already as a youth hub, but also it attracts families – sometimes with very small children. With the addition of a playground and toilets, the park would be ideal.
So far there are quite a few new skaters attending classes twice weekly, and about 20 regular skaters; and there is a yearly event that includes a light- hearted competition, so look out for the announcement of their next event.

Leela and Yona- Life in Av

In this short interview, we ask one another questions about how it is to live here as a teenager and how we feel about the schools, Solar Kitchen food, and the difference of staying in a small community versus living in a big city, etc...
